Former Canadian defence minister claims aliens refuse to share technology because of Earth’s wars...
National Post ^ | January 6, 2014 | National Post Staff

Posted on 01/07/2014 3:52:03 AM PST by rickmichaels

Former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer, the so-called highest-ranked alien believer on Earth, says that extraterrestrials live among us and they refuse to share their advanced technology due to wars and pollution.

Hellyer, who was a Liberal defence minister from 1963 to 1967 under prime minister Lester B. Pearson, went public with his belief in aliens on earth in 2005.

Hellyer, 90, told Russia Today last week that he believes there are 80 different species of extraterrestrials, some of whom “look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one.

Paul Hellyer has some severe mental problems. He is an embarrassment.

I’ve decided that there is no reason for aliens to come to earth.

Either they haven’t discovered us or they simply aren’t interested in us. Of the two I think a lack of interest is preferable. It means they’ve discovered us and decided we weren’t worth bothering with. If they haven’t discovered us we should hope they don’t and if they do we should hope they pass us by.

The problem is that the bad reasons they might contact us are far more numerous than the good reasons they might contact us. The only good reason would be that they’re friendly and want to be friendly with us for some inexplicable reason.

If they were here seeking resources it would be a very bad day for us indeed. There would be little point in strip mining the planet, sucking up our atmosphere, or draining the oceans. All the things that make up the earth can be found in vast abundance all across the universe.

The biological protiens are the only thing that appears to be rare in the universe (that we know of) and that most likely means food.

So how does he know there are 80 different species if they look just like us...?

Aliens visited Washington, DC, saw the Obamas, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Rinos and declared they are no intelligent life here.

Darn those aliens. I think I know some sort of alien who lives down the street from me. I’m going to give him a piece of my mind. At least I think he’s an alien. Keeps telling me to stay off his lawn. I bet he doesn’t want me to see his flying saucer he has hidden in his back yard.

As far as we know, all life currently on the planet is related. It is all made up of the same four building blocks. We live in a soup of this life. Estimates are that a 150 pound human carries 5 pounds of bacteria and other smaller life forms. In terms of numbers these outnumber our human cells because they are so small. (see “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson.) We can survive all of this life because we evolved with it. But our immune system either sees it as friendly (the stuff in your gut) or it fights it to a standstill until we get too old and weak, at which point we die. (This stuff is why we rot.)

If alien life ever got here and it could survive it would be a disaster beyond biblical proportions. That’s because all the alien bacteria needs to flourish is generally warmth (98.6 would probably do) and moisture (sweat would do.) We’d probably all die of raging jock itch.

Fortunately, as Mr. Bryson points out, the universe is mercifully big. It would take light 7 hours to get to Pluto. Absent amazing technology or at least good special effects, it would take aliens millions of years to get here. At which point we can presume they wouldn’t bother anal probing rednecks in Alabama or stomping down crop circles in Iowa.

Right. Ever hear of relativity? That means that the faster you go, the slower time goes, so that time outside of your spaceship could be elapsing at a rate several times faster than inside the ship. So, we are to believe that extraterrestrials would be willing to travel countless light-years, while everyone they knew on their home planet gets old and dies, just so that they can play practical jokes on us earthlings?

Yep, that’s believable.

Why is liberalism so attractive to those of unstable mental abilities?

I think it is WAY too early for us to exclude effective space travel because of “the laws of nature” forbidding it.

The two most fundamental theories of physics are General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. As far as our experimentation shows, both are absolutely true. But they are also utterly contradictory, both cannot be true.

So we search for a Theory of Everything, with the present leading contenders being a variety of String Theories, which posit varying numbers of dimensions that we cannot sense. 7 extra is the presently most popular number.

Meanwhile, various factors indicate that 95%+ of the matter and energy in the Universe is “dark,” in a form (or possibly in dimensions) where we cannot detect it.

Given our present obvious inability to understand what the true underlying Laws of Nature are, it seems absurd to me to proclaim that we “know” they impose an Eternal Speed Limit.

Such may indeed be the case, but we really don’t have evidence to prove it, at this time.

These stories are always hilarious.

The aliens among us always turn out to be mentally 2014 Western liberals.

If aliens actually showed up, of course, they'd be alien.

Which would probably mean their goals, values and motivations would be difficult for us to even understand.

This same stuff goes on in books, movies, etc. about the past and, usually, other cultures. The leading characters are invariably mentally indistinguishable from faculty of any European or American university.

This is very boring.

Two mini-series that I think did a good job of portraying different ways of thinking and value systems.

Shogun portrayed two very different cultures and ways of thinking, from each other and from us. 1600s Europeans and 1600s Japanese.

Borgia, the Tom Fontana version. While wildly historically inaccurate, this miniseries does an excellent job of portraying how different people were back then.

Not any different than believing in Al Gore's Global Warming scam or promises made by Obama and his Democrats. They are all equally looney.

General Relativity is the current leading theory, and is consistent with observations.

There was a time when that was true of Newtonian physics. There was a time when it was true of Aristotle.

I do not mean to call Einstein's theory into question; the man was brilliant and, as far as we can tell, correct. However, I don't think even Einstein would have said that General Relativity would be the last word in physics. There may be a time in the future in which we think of Einstein the same way we think of Newton.

I guess you have to have a pair of special glasses...

And, as to your reference to "angels", I think that's closer to the truth. Demonic entities used to manifest as "fairy folk", goblins, elves, gremlins, etc.

Now that we're so much more "enlightened", they appear as aliens.

" I wanna tell you something, something you do not yet know, that we K-PAXians have been around long enough to have discovered. The universe will expand, then it will collapse back on itself, then will expand again. It will repeat this process forever. What you don't you know is that when the universe expands again, everything will be as it is now. Whatever mistakes you make this time around, you will live through on your next pass. Every mistake you make, you will live through again, & again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have."

I'd have to agree with you on that. Personally, I doubt the Cosmic Speed Limit is absolute, or there isn't a way to scoot around it.

If mankind is ultimately intended to survive as a species, either FTL travel is possible, or zero point energy is accessible. At minimum, one of these two conditions have to be true.

Alpha Centauri, our nearest star, is 165,000 years from here at the fastest speeds we’re capable of. Even at the speed of light, it would take 4.3 years to get there, and according to our best science, we’d have to contend with the relativistic effects of infinite mass and the need for infinite energy to move our mass. Warp engines are a pipe dream.

SETI has been listening for decades for any sign of intelligent life “out there,” and has utterly failed to do so. If intelligent life is as common in the universe as the Sagans of the world claim it is, there’s zero evidence of it. It appears that life is a rarity in the universe, and the only place we KNOW it to exist is here. That’s the case, of course, because abiogenesis is laughably impossible.

With apologies to Johnny Lee, this Canadian clown is “Putting his faith in all the wrong places.”

Folding dimensions would allow critters to travel instantaneously vast (3D) distances. The constraint would be the amount of power to fold the dimension for larger and larger distances.
